All dishonored or returned forms of payment are also subject to prosecution under the Nevada Revised Statutes, NRS 205.130 and other applicable laws. In no instance will a customer be permitted to establish any new water service account(s) until that customer fully satisfies any delinquent amounts owing to the District.

Payment Arrangements Due to Water Leaks

Customers are responsible for any water that flows through their meter. The District will not forgive any portion of a customer’s water bill due to leaks.

The District’s customer service personnel may approve reasonable payment plans for amounts owing to the District associated with a water leak.

Illegal Restoration of Service
